hi all I have dealt with horrible acid reflex to the point I sleep sitting up. .several months ago started getting dizzy and vomiting along with some sore throat. .before this  often felt like wen I swallowed food wouldn't go down..i finally went to the gastro doc who said I had a 4 cm hital hernia and recommended surgery....I go for my last ultrasound and baram swallow test  Friday ,then meet with the surgeon...has anyone had these symtems and been turned down for the surgery? I take nexium ,and 2 meds that supossidly help but after a few wks its back to the same throwing up all day.its now to the point my throat is raw and bleeds and my stomach ,especially by my ribs feels like its on fire(was told this is from the hernia)has anyone experienced this? and last question how long r u normally out of work? I care for disabled kids and have to lift over 100 pounds regularly..thanks love this group

with your work I would expect to be out of work a good 6 to 8 weeks. I am amechanic and had to wait 8 weeks due to all the heavy lifting and such.

Take care,
